Watch Teatro Abierto from Argentina in Delhi this Weekend!

Attributes: Others

This idea of correlating and co-existing of people, countries and divisions being shared through theatre for human enrichment and peace is coming to a rise through the efforts of various cultural centres of embassies of different countries in India. One such play will be performed by Kaivalya Plays in association with Instituto Cervantes Nueva Delhi and the Embajada de la Republica Argentina en India/Embassy of Argentina in India this weekend. 

The play “Saying Yes” (Decir si), written by Griselda Gambaro, was released in 1981 as the first production of the Open Theatre (Teatro Abierto). It was performed by the best Argentinian theatre community in protest of the highly impactful military dictatorship in Argentina during 1976 and 1983. Teatro Abierto was “a way of politically and theatrically challenging the atomization that had implanted the military dictatorship with respect to culture.”

The play has been directed by Varoon P. Anand who's also the founding member of Kaivalya Plays. This will be his sixth directorial venture in association with the Instituto Cervantes. He has adapted, translated and directed several other plays and stories by mainly Spanish writers. Kaivalya Plays is an independent group of theatre artists working with an aim to mentor new talents and innovate theatre formats. 

It will be performed by Delhi based actors, Mohit Mukherjee and Piyush Kumar and Srishti Chaturvedi has assisted Varoon in directing it. The entry to the performance is free of cost and it will be staged twice on August 26 and 27 in the Exhibition Hall, Instituto Cervantes Nueva Delhi at 7:30 p.m.
